D: DIY Art

A  few weeks ago one of my favorite bloggers Beatrice Clay posted a DIY art tutorial on Hand Lettering Quotes You Love. Since then I have visited this post at least 10 times. I just can’t get it out of my head. When I started the A to Z Challenge, I knew I wanted to do this DIY art project for my letter D. Needless to say I did not have the supplies necessary on the day. All is not lost, I went out and purchased a few art supplies to do this DIY hand lettering project. I purchased Michael’s house brand Artist’s Loft supplies because they were the most economical and as a newbie to this whole thing, I needed to make sure I could do it with love before purchasing more expensive supplies. I’m a mama on a budget so these supplies along with a 20% off Michael’s coupon were right up my alley.

So my D post is the actual supplies. Stay tuned for the final project and the bloopers along the way.

I am so excited about tapping into my creative side.

As Beatrice Clay says, I’m doing this  ‘For a Beautiful Life.”
